Scrappy stash yarns sweater with no name with feather and fan stitch began its life as a cowl, with possibility of a poncho becoming a sweater at behest of darling daughter. Was a mission at the end to find yarns to finish. #connielenedesign #featherandfan #knitintheround @melissajohnston1817

Beret knit in the round with small intarsia sections and various yarn types

And we are (I am) taking out the shocking pink yarn. #featherandfanstitch #connielenedesign #knitintheround #colourplay

What a disaster. I added a new shocking pink to this sweater sleeve and it just doesn't work.
It is what happens when you are a bit under the weather and want to finish. I'm back looking for more more suitable colours. #knitintheround #connielenedesign #featherandfan #colourplay

Another sweater from 2002. Brown wool in the main, with stripes on the front only using various textured yarns of different colours.

Such a shame Rowan colourscape yarn is no longer available. #conniecowl #connielenedesign #knitintheround

The blues sweater created in 2002. Many different blues and yarn types. I cannot give more detail as was for my Best Beloved and believe it or not he lost it

the last sleeve is on its way now.
I am knitting whilst in bed glancing out from time to time at the lovely day I am missing.
I am not really really ill, just a nasty cold and cough. It is just insurance against possibility as have hospital pre operation appt Friday next and don't want to be sick and have knee surgery postponed.
Best beloved is looking after me so well and I am knitting which is always a pleasure
